I have dedcided to do a classic Bodypump Series review :) the releases in 1996 - 1997 were some of the best pumps ever released.

Here is Bodypump 21:

Had the pleasure of doing this release as a participant many years ago. When Les Mills was Les Mills Aerobics and Les Mills Bodypump was Pump. I have the pleasure of owning release 21 and it is one of my treasured Bodypump releases. The video was presented by Michael and Emma Barry.

Where do you begin. One of Us and All Night Long kick off this release. I love the ones in the Best of Bodypump release 48 but there is nothing like the originals to me. I love the choreogrpahy Michael did on those tracks. Track 2 is one of the toughest track 2's ever.

Rebel Rebel is outstanding a real fast chest track and a really killer there is no break ever in this track I love chest tracks with no breaks and this one was a cracker.

Chisel come to Bodypump with Lay Down Your Guns there is no break in this track you rack up the weights "Get tough and get going" and just go crazy with the C & P.

Manrock presents track 5 outstanding track one of the most complicated track 5's to learn. There is so much going on in this track and the dips at the end are a killer to the triceps - if you think 55 was a pain then 21 is 10 times a burn on the shoulders.

Billy Ocean was a bonus track on one of the 40's series of Bodypump - this one has no breaks at all you simply pick up the weights and don't stop till the end of the track. I like track 6's like this the current one in release 56 :)

What can one say about Pride the longest lunge track in Bodypump ever I like long tracks in Bodypump the longer the better. It has the classic ending that we had back then in all track 7's and continued in the 30's series.

Do It was re-released as bonust track. I loved the original by the end of the track shoulder burns ensure and it is a killer shoulder - arms tracks. Do it is the hardest track 8's ever.

My Prerogative is classic abs from that time if you have not done abs to Bobby Brown then you have not done abs.

And Native New Yorker ends the class. Out of most of the 20's series this is a "Broadway" cooldown. We have never had a "Broadway" cooldown. The track reminds me of a broadway show.

Just love release 21 lots if you have an chance to do release 21 please do it. It is a classic Bodypump and one of my favorites of all time ever :)

1 BP 21 One of Us Wild Side
